•IT-IE BAKERSFIBLD CALTFORNiAX, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18, 1925 COUNCIL CANDIDATES OUTLINE POLICIES AT LABOR BOARD MEETING "; v i ^*- m' "T*I° IT rlght or don>t do Jt at all- JLJ To the average American citizen tbero arc two ways, tho right way and •tho wrong, but to me there is only one way, tho right wav." So said Mayor TJ.' K. Stoner, incumbent councilman trom tho Seventh ward'when hu spoko boforo a public meeting In the Labor temple last night at which the candidates for City Council positions were introduced and given tho opportunity to present their campaign policies to the people. Praising the present regime the jnayor said that two years ago found tho council in a deplorable state of affairs. Since that time the operation of tho city has been raised to its present state of efficiency through tho installation of the city manager plan and through tlio unified action of the council in every way. "In the present council," said Mayor Stoner, "there has T.nvor been 'kny quibbling or argument juirt never hns there been an instance of mud-slinging." Up to Voters Speaking of the 'proposed dls-meorpo- ration of the Bakersfleld Municipal Water .District the mayor said: The council could not agree on tho water question so the matter has been placed •up to the people In the coming; elections of March 24. In such a case the council cannot do tho thinking It Is up to the people to decide whether or not they desire this thing. The people must 'think the matter out for themselves." To those not familiar with the operation of tho present form of city government the mayor said that it was jiot up to the council to run the city. 'Sjoave the government of the city to tho cttytmanBger." he said. Since the adoption of such .a plan the city has been run more efficiently and at less comparative cost than ever before. Concluding, Mayor Stonor rested his campaign upon the three words typical of,his past career and pledged to be continued If re-elocted, "Do It right." Hotly Argued , 'Though no apparent political Issues are felt to be present In the coming election tho voting of tho people on tho question of public ownership of a municipal water system was hotly argued both for and'against by candidates in their, election speeches. Heartily in favor of tho proposition, C. A. Griffith, Incumbent first ward councilman, said : that out of the 267 large cities In the country owning their own water systems, 257 had found them i to / be suoeessf ul. "Bakersfleld," said Mr. Griffith, "Is one of the only three • cities In the state,"out'of a group of 10 'largo California cities, that does not yet own and operate her own water system." In announcing his jpampalgn policy the speaker warned the public that now It ever was tho time to carry through the building of the Union avenue sub>way. "Through a ruling, of the railroad commission," .he said, "It will cost thTclty but $12,000, the Santa Fe rall- i road being compelled', to make up the difference . of* the 'total .cost, which Is estimated at $42,000. If the people wait tot a new decision-by the commission It will probably mean the reapportlon- tnent of the financial burden of the < project. Bakersfleld may then have to • pay at least one-half of the expenses." fHla campaign, Mr. Griffith said, would #be on the progressive development of j*greater Bakersfleld and reference to JOT pant record on the council, pommon Sense P. L. True, opposing Mr. Griffith In .the First Ward, said that If elected he would "use common sense In the office. "I belibve in,giving the people what they want," he said, "and I am In favor of every public Improvement that Is desired by the people. I believe that If accepted by the people from my ward that I can apply to the office the fundamental principles of good business, and though progressive In my views I am heartily opposed to actions of a radical nature." Basing his speech on the subject of taxation H. H. Brown, from the Second Word, sold that In this fast age if eome stop la not put to the upward trend of taxation a national crash will • bo Inevitable. "I am for a bigger and "better Bakersfield,'' Mr. , Brows said, "and If elected will do all in my power to Iceep the costs of operating the city as low as possible without sacrificing efficiency In BO doing." For Better City TV, J. Carlisle, Incumbent councilman from the Second Ward, spoke briefly ' on-his candidacy, saying that It was the flrst time In his-life that he had , ever made a public speech. His cam- paign'policy, he said, was the Improvement of Bakei$fleld by and with the i consent of the people.

"W. Cnrlock, Third Ward Incumbent, based his whole campaign, upon that Issue. Opposing the present Third Ward councilman in tho coming cloctlons, Dr. Thomas .T. Wynne held that if elected lie would take special pains to see that "labor" received a fair deal and that he would stand for all that the ward cnlla for. Favors Water Project Jn his speech for re-election, Councilman O. T. Austin of the Fifth Ward based his campaign upon the need of a munlcipally-owncd water system and tho progress!vcncss of .the council of which ho Is n. member. He also placed himself strongly in favor of home industry, pleading for the patronage of local industry wherever possible. Tho only candidate present for Sixth ward honors, Elmer Martin, produced a platform of Integrity and sound judgment built upon 32 years residence in Bakers;field, where he has token an active part in the local business world. "I will do rny very best- to follow the laws of tho council," he said, "and I will boost tho city. I would rather KO into office. If elected, without having made any election promises to the people, anci then help operate the city as a business proposition, for thn failure of a candidate) to fulfill electioneering promises Is bound to make for the candidate hosts of enemies." Mr. Martin has for the last IB years been a land owner in thin city and is thoroughly familiar with tho phases oC public street and property improvement. Opposing Mayor Stonor In the Seventh ward, B. H. Scott, vigorously opposed the purchase of what he termed a second-hand water supply for $1,500,000, suggesting that It would be much cheaper for the city to build a now systom, free of all the faults of the present ono, with the money. Ho also suggested the purchase of broad tracts of land by the city to bo given gratis to large manufacturing firms desiring to locata their plants in this city. Paving Plant As a plan for freeing the people from the menacing, grasp of tho paving companies, as he expressed H, tho candidate further placed himself in favor of the municipal ownership of ono large pavIng'Tlant which would do all of the city's street work at -reduced costs. X,elloy M. Hendsch, also running in the Seventh ward, made w,Jiat he declared to be his rnalden speech, saying .that as an old resident of the city he was In the race to win. He placed himself in favor of the construction of a civic center and pledged himself to the people if elected. The candidate de- clardd that ho was not-In favor of the present election of councllmcn from wards but deemed It best to elect tho men representing the people at large. This, he said, would eliminate friction between council members and political hurts and Jealousies. m Running as a candidate for the Fourth ward, Ira Ijakey pronounced himself a booster for the city and a proponent for a Greater Bakersflelfl through the progressive upbuilding of the city. Business Session J. R. Mclntosh, president of the Kern County Labor Council, presided at the meeting, naming IS. A. Klein as secrc tary for the session. An executive mooting of the council was held following the public audience given the candidates, in which .the labor council declared itself as desiring to give an unbiased support to those candidates whom It felt would best serve the • city. "It is not our intention," said Mr. IVTcIntosh, "to suppont one man in favor of anoUier merely because he carries, or has carried at one time, a card In the local unions. No matter If our best friends carried cards arid ran for council offices, wo would feel that if a better man was running for office, a man who would serve the city better, ho would receive our hearty support." No action was taken at tho meeting in regard to the suggesting of candidates who were most favored in their candidacy by the unions.
